About Us

Kolenu is Seattle's Jewish LGBTQ Young Adult group. We are an inclusive community for LGBTQ Jews in Seattle. Kolenu strives to create an atmosphere where queer identified people from a wide spectrum of Jewish backgrounds can feel comfortable.

Our programming is geared towards LGBTQ Jews in their 20's and 30's, but we frequently hold events that are open to the entire community.

We are open to all expressions of identity, both in terms of Judaism and sexuality/gender. Past events include Gay 'Ol Purim Party, Light the Night: A GLBTQ Hanukkah, Shabbat Brunches, film and speakers nights, Pride Shabbat, and more.

Kolenu is run by volunteers, so please contact Alysa Rosen or Josh Furman if you would like to be involved. We can also be reached at kolenu.seattle@gmail.com

4th Annual Light the Night: A GLBTQ Hanukkah
Tuesday, December 11, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Lobby Bar

Enjoy tasty latkes, colorful dreidels, music and a beautiful candle lighting symbolizing both the miracle of Hanukkah and the idea that great leadership and community action will prevail against oppression.

This year, we are fortunate to celebrate a new "miracle" in our time: marriage equality in Washington State. In this spirit, we will be honoring community leaders who were active in Referendum 74.

FREE and open to the community. Allies, friends and family welcome. Due to the location, this is a 21+ event.

This event is made possible through the generous support of Jconnect Seattle, The Lobby Bar, Jewish Family Service and The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
